Hi there! Thanks for stopping by today. It was Living and Dining week on The Block. Always one of my fave reveals as I generally want to copy what they’ve done. Known for lots of cushioning, over accessorising and clever tv storage I was dying to see what they came up with.
Here’s how the scoring went… Ronnie and Georgia 29.5, Elyse and Josh 29.5 (they used their bonus point towards their final score), Jason and Sarah on 26.5, Hannah and Clint on 23.5 and Sticks and Wombat at 20.
Come and check them out in order of points this week…
Georgia & Ronnie
The judges were smitten with Georgia and Ronnie’s room again this week. The couple finished before schedule yet again. How on earth are they doing that?? I liked the room too. But wasn’t blown away. I thought Josh and Elyse’s was better. I didn’t like how the tv was randomly just sitting there. I think that could have been better positioned. I liked the neutral colours and use of natives to tie it all together. It’s a serene room, but nothing is stopping me in my tracks.

Josh & Elyse
For me, this room was the winner. The overall feel, textures and styling is perfect. There’s also good storage in this space. A hanging plant is a big tick from me and the tv sits in a better spot in this room.
Sarah & Jason
Jason and Sarah did a good job on their living and dining this week. They defined the 2 spaces well and created a welcoming area with good storage too. I like the storage ideas in a living space. I wasn’t a fan of their furniture choices but it will be interesting to see how this meshes with their kitchen coming up.

Hannah & Clint
I was hoping for big things from Hannah and Clint. I know they’ve got it somewhere! The judges did not like the wall they put up between the living and dining. I don’t mind it because it gave them a good fire place area. I have a similar thing in my own home. It will be interesting to see how it plays out with the kitchen. I wasn’t a fan of their furniture though. I prefer more natural and warm tones.

Sticks & Wombat
The judges were hard with Sticks and Wombat this week telling them to rethink their choices and use of timber. Oh. I am not with them on that. What’s wrong with this room? Why was Hannah and Clint’s better? Or even Ronnie and Georgia’s for that matter? I like the space. It feels good, is zoned well and has storage. The couch is the best one by far! There’s detail in the ceiling with a bulkhead and downlights too. Hmmmm.
